On the Weekly Roundup Brad and Dan begin by going through the litany of Trump’s attempts to thwart NY DA Alvin Bragg’s case against him and his call for supporters to protest if/when he is arrested. This, in their mind, portends the kind of violence we saw at January 6th. They also note the complicity of GOP leadership in Trump’s attacks on the DA and the ways the GOP has tied itself to Trumpism regardless of who is running for office.
In the second segment the hosts check in on a number of cases in Mississippi, Texas, and Pennsylvania where state-level officials have taken over local school districts, police forces, and other agencies when Black officials are in charge. It is a state takeover of local agencies targeting POC communities.
In the final segment Brad geeks out over new revelations of meddling in the 1980 election – by way of Iran. It’s a story you won’t believe until you hear it.
